Meditation is the practice that involves stillness of the body and the mind, leading us to a state of deep calmness and inner peace. In the modern world many people find difficult to be still and quiet.
We are constantly bombarded with information and perceptions coming from the senses that seem impossible to be stopped. But as any other skill that we learn, like dancing, painting, swimming, skiing and so on, we can also learn to meditate.
Meditation leads you to increased self-awareness, helping you to deal with the aspects of life that sometimes trigger confusions, disappointments or suffering.
